Blind Veterans Home Page

Welcome to the National Association of Blind

Veterans web site. We hope you enjoy exploring

this  action packed  site as  we have filled it with as much information about  blindness and blind veterans as we could possibly find. We are a group of Blind and Sighted Veterans along with friends and interested

associates that support the issues and challenges

of Blind Veterans. This site is intended to further

the opportunity of our group to interact with the

expanding world around us.

The Presidents Message,

Please reach out to your Senators Office in Washington DC and ask them to get on board and co/sponsor S346, which allows 100 percent service connected disabled veterans to access the Space A program on Military Aircraft. This is the best way to fix the wrong when 100 percent service connected disabled veterans were left out of the program.
